Raqesh Bapat has often been accused of not taking a stand, this time by host Karan Johar too. His old friend Nishant Bhatt too had an interesting point of view about the Tum Bin actor.
Raqesh Bapat has often come into the spotlight in the Bigg Boss OTT house for not speaking up. The matter was highlighted more recently when he broke down and did not retaliate on time.
Host Karan Johar felt the same and on Bigg Boss Sunday Ka Vaar episode, asked Raqesh why he didn't take a stand when Zeeshan didn't support them, back then and there, furthermore when the actor was being pushed from all sides. Raqesh says that he's inherently a softer person and honestly cannot fight so he won't change himself because of a game show. He justifies stating that even if he tries to talk, his voice doesn't stand out. Karan once again asked Raqesh to take a stand when the situation happens.
He asks Nishant if Raqesh's silence is his power or weakness. The choreographer, who has been Raqesh's friend for 15 years, called the actor 'a strong personality' and said that his opinions and decision-making is very strong in real life. When Karan asked him if Raqesh is being fake, Nishant refused the same stating the actor isn't coming to the front yet and is confused. He said that Raqesh judges people based on what he hears from certain (four-five) people.
Nishant further added that Raqesh wishes to keep his stand, which is clear on his face but he is unable to talk about it, probably because of the aura around him (referring to Raqesh's 'connection' Shamita Shetty being an influence on the actor). When Karan asked if the game is getting out of Raqesh's hands, Nishant agrees.

Raqesh disagreed with the point of one person being responsible for his actions. He said that the overall ambience of the house is something he cannot deal with.
Neha interrupted the conversation and said that if Nishant were Raqesh's friend, he wouldn't 'bully' the latter, which offends the choreographer.
Karan Johar then accused Nishant of not extending an olive branch to Raqesh the way he should have, considering their old friendship. Neha and Shamita pounced on Nishant for calling Raqesh 'spineless'. Nishant, in turn, blames Karan for using that word during the last Sunday Ka Vaar.
Concluding the discussion, KJo asked Raqesh to stop running away from situations. He asked him to react to the situation on time. He pleaded to him without folded hands, making Raqesh laugh.
KJo accused the actor of being influenced during his decisions. Raqesh, who termed himself dumb in the game, stated that he needs helps from time-to-time. To that statement, Karan said nobody has played the game before and they are equally dumb.
After KJo left the contestants alone, Raqesh told Shamita and Neha that he doesn't like to speak when he isn't heard. He was later seen praising Shamita when it was just the two of them. The Tum Bin actor said that her strength makes her a good person and shared that everyone in the house needs anger management classes.
